The Moroccan ministry of foreign affairs and cooperation on Friday, December 11, 2015 issued a press release stating that “Morocco expresses its astonishment at the EU Court judgment on EU-Morocco agricultural agreement”.

”The Kingdom of Morocco took note of the ruling of the European Union’s court on the appeal lodged against the agreement between Morocco and the European Union related to reciprocal liberalization measures regarding agricultural products, processed farming products and fisheries products, adopted on March 8, 2012″, said the Moroccan ministry of foreign affairs and cooperation.

”Although the decision concerns the European Council exclusively and despite the fact that it does not challenge at all the agriculture agreement concluded between Morocco and the European Union, the Kingdom expresses astonishment over the decision on a protocol, which, like all the other bilateral agreements, is conform to international legality”, the ministry pointed out.

”The Kingdom of Morocco is legitimately wondering on the opportunity of maintaining the whole set of contracts that the two countries have managed to build over long years in political, economic, human and security fields in a spirit of partnership and respect of internationally-recognized values” and “expects the European Union to take the appropriate measures to find a final way out to this procedure”, the ministry went on.

”Morocco will follow up with vigilance the unfolding of a judiciary adventure which bears a strong political overtone and will take, as need be, the appropriate measures”, the source stressed, adding “we remain confident in the legal solidity of the agreements concluded with the European Union and in the European Council competent bodies’ ability to make prevail the legal rules over any political consideration.

Finally, Morocco reiterates “constant will to live up to its commitment toward the European Union in serenity and mutual confidence and in the respect of international legality”, the release concluded.
